About the Author –

Aanandika Sood is a journalist and writer. She likes to live mostly inside a world in her own head, reading and spinning stories and wishing for a Bollywood-esque life. Often called melodramatic, she aspires to stay so till the end. She blogs about books and her parenting struggles fails (and sometimes wins) at aanandika.blogspot.com and lives in Kolkata with her husband and two children, Bhindisood and Cutletkumar.

Book Blurb –

Walking their own paths, Amrita and Sahil had been content and busy with their own lives on two different continents. They had known each other in passing but never came very close. One fine day, destiny demanded that they come within each other’s periphery. Maybe after years of autumn, it was time now for a season of hope.

Book Review –

The book is short and well divided into chapters, keeping it simple and easy to run through as a day’s read. Cover of the book is simple yet inviting, it transpires clearly what to expect from the book – Romance and Emotions.

The language used by the author is simple with a few punches of emotional palpitations making it feel real.

The characters are built carefully, keeping in mind the progress in the story and time. The plot revolves around the protagonist couple Amrita and Sahil, who are school friends settled in their respective lives, yet missing on companionship. Along with the main lead, the supporting characters take the story forward with a well-written plot and tight narration.

The emotional connection of the characters and the city of Chandigarh is well crafted. I especially liked how she has used real brand names and locations to create a connection with the characters. Like Mocha from Overstory, Sector 17 plaza market which is well known for tourists and residents.

True to her ‘Bollywood-Esque’ inspiration, the author has also tried to bring a love triangle into the protagonist’s story. A lethal addition of attraction and career aspirations, to be fought with emotions, love, and family responsibilities.

The book has a great storyline and enjoyable to read, however, a few grammatical errors could have been avoided with good proofreading and editing. I hope the author will rectify them to keep readers engaged with the book’s feel without any hindrance.

It is a good short read and gets 4.5 stars from me. You can download your FREE copy from Blogchatter using this link – https://www.theblogchatter.com/download/a-season-of-hope-by-aanandika-sood/


Every love story is special and writing remarkable tales of love is like falling in love with LOVE all over again.
